Who’s afraid of the IPEd accreditation exam?

Lots of people, frankly! But it’s also a rewarding way to boost your qualifications and recognition as an editor.

So how to face the fear?

Come and meet four editors who sat last year’s exam and survived the process. Eleanor Ahern, Lisa Morrison, Birgitt Olsen and Andrea Rankin tell all!

It’s a sordid tale of tracky dacks, ergonomic pens and going to bed with the Style manual. Hear also about their solid preparation, study (aka support) group and practice exams.

No question will be too silly for our panellists who are just incredibly relieved to have passed and happy to share their experiences.

We’ll serve refreshments during the meeting, but you might also like to join us for a meal at 6 pm at Red Rock Noodle Bar & Restaurant, 187 Rundle Street (same address as the SA Writers Centre). Please RSVP to at least four days before the meeting.
